GREENSBORO — Southern Guilford has hired former Carver coach Wil Perry as its boys basketball coach. Perry will replace Evan Fancourt, who left the Storm after five seasons to become head coach at Page.
Perry guided the Yellowjackets to an 11-15 record during the 2018-19 season, which ended with a loss to Hendersonville in the first round of the NCHSAA Class 1-A playoffs. After starting his coaching career in 2008 as an assistant at Smith, Perry became head coach at Carver in 2013. He inherited a team that finished 1-19 the previous season and guided the Yellow Jackets to a second-place conference finish and a 12-15 record. Carver also finished second in its conference during the 2014–15 season, going 18-7.
In six seasons with the Yellowjackets, Perry compiled a 70-85 record with four playoff appearances.
“Coach Perry is the right person to lead our program going forward,” Jeff Carter, Southern Guilford’s athletics director, said today in a news release. “Coach Perry has all the attributes that you could ask for in a quality teacher, coach and person. He will be an asset not only to our basketball program, but to our school and community as well.”
A 2007 graduate of N.C. A&T, Perry and his wife, Ryen, and have two sons, Roman and Mason.
